SANZAR has advised of minor amendments to the kick-off times of four forthcoming South African Super Rugby fixtures, following a request from SuperSport and after consultation with SARU.
The changes have been approved to ensure smooth delivery of each match to television audiences without any potential overlap on what loom as crucial matchdays featuring triple-headers from South Africa.
The kick-off time for the DHL Stormers’ game against the Cheetahs – at DHL Newlands on Saturday, June 29 – has been changed from 19h10 to 19h15.
The affected matches are as follows:
Round 18 – June 29:
The Sharks v Blues (brought forward 10 minutes to 14h50)
DHL Stormers v Toyota Cheetahs (bumped back five minutes to 19h15)
Round 19 – July 6:
Toyota Cheetahs v Blues (brought forward 10 minutes to 14h50 local)
Vodacom Bulls v The Sharks (bumped back five minutes to 19h15 local)
